David Clarke, the straight-talking African-American sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, said on Fox News Friday morning that President Obama exploits situations and fuels anger through the way he responds to tragic events.

The sheriff is frustrated with Obama, whom he calls “cop-hater-in-chief,” because of his seemingly detached response to the brutal attack on Dallas police officers.

“It’s kind of interesting he said the facts aren’t in, he usually is popping off at the mouth before he’s been briefed or before he knows any of the facts…” Clarke continued, “He’s armed with powerful words and he uses those words irresponsibly. It fuels this sort of anger toward the American police officer and I wish he’d knock it off.”

He also took aim at Hillary Clinton for her refusal to show support for law enforcement officers. Sheriff Clarke went so far as to say that, “I think the saddest day for law enforcement would be if she were to become the president of the United States.”

In contrast, Clarke says he hopes and prays Donald Trump is elected president. The sheriff commented that Trump is unmatched in his choice to stand “behind and beside the American law enforcement officer.”
